Valencia-based Daniel Rueda is a graduate architect and self-taught architectural photographer. He found that people without backgrounds in architecture were not easily drawn to his work, so he teamed up with his girlfriend and accomplice Anna Devís; also an architect, and a student of design and illustration. Together they came up with a more playful approach to architecture photography.
In their images, the architecture of the place is connected to a story, showing either Anna, Daniel or both of them interacting with the environment. They either travel to unique locations or create everything from scratch. Their goal is simple: Catch the viewer’s attention, tell a visual story the audience understands at first glance and put a smile on their faces.
By playing with the elements, the background and geometry, Daniel and Anna want to show that architecture can be interesting for everyone. Daniel explains; “The idea behind all this is that people should feel inspired to tell stories with photography instead of just showing places or taking selfies.”
